Philadelphia duo, Louis Futon, have been nearly breaking the internet with their recent string of remixes, racking up hundreds of thousands of plays for their freshly revamped takes on topical hip hop jawns. Their most recent endeavor is a summery rework of Logic’s “Break It Down,” juxtaposing shimmering synth leads with a deep, bulbous bassline for a laid-back, feel-good anthem. The guys have made it available for free via Facebook before they announce details on their new EP, so grab the DL and keep an eye on Soundcloud for more info! √+
After a huge response from the premiere of their single “Cold Nights” earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based duo Chordashian have been hard at work with forthcoming productions set to release from now into the new year.

Fans of Tensnake and the French Express crew will be all over this one, so listen below and grab it for FREE!
The young LA based label Prep School Recordings have delivered a summer-solid release to carry through this seasons warmer climate. Young guns SNBRN (formerly of No Body) and Mossberg Pump (LED) have cultivated a deeper disco vibe in this 2-track EP, capturing the sound of their Southern California-based origins and as they put are “As fresh as a poolside mojito.” The release just dropped today on Beatport and iTunes, and fans of French Express, Eskimo, and Future Boogie will be all over these tracks. Have a listen below and support these fresh faces!

Stream the full ‘Disko Version’ below.
